Title
Primary Care Physician
Summary:

Brockton Neighborhood Health Center is a community health center south of Boston that serves a diverse population of mostly low-income patients. We are located in a beautiful new building in downtown Brockton. In October, 2010 we received a Federal grant of $11.3 million to add an additional 24,000 square feet on to our four year old building. This addition was completed in late 2012. We have added four floors on top of our new urgent care center, which is an extension of our building that opened in July of 2010. The new floors include adult medicine, obstetrics-gynecology, pediatrics, behavioral health, optometry, and dental services. We are using NextGen’s EMR.

Primary Care:

Our primary care physicians practice within a Patient Centered Medical Home model. Physicians will have assigned patient panels that are capped at 1500 patients. Physicians must be board certified or eligible in internal medicine or family practice.

Hours are Monday through Thursday 8:15-8 pm, Friday 8:15-6, Saturday 9-3. Primary Care physicians will see patients roughly 8:15-5:30 four days per week, 11-8 once a week and one Saturday every 8 weeks.

Hospital and Call:

Our adult medicine patients are admitted to Good Samaritan Medical Center or Brockton Hospital. Both hospitals provide 24/7 hospitalist coverage.

Call is approximately 1 in 8 and is telephone coverage only for patients who call our answering service. The adult medicine group currently takes call a week at a time.

Compensation and benefits:
  • Our starting salary is $165,000. In addition, we offer up to $10,000 per year in incentive bonuses and the opportunity to increase base salary to $180,000 upon completion of incentive goals.
  • We are happy to sponsor J-1 waivers and green card applications for H1b candidates.
  • BNHC has a facility Health Professional Shortage Area designation with a score of 13 out of a possible 21. We are an approved National Health Service Corps loan repayment site.
  • The National Health Services Corps is currently offering a generous loan repayment program for a 2 year commitment. There is also a state loan repayment program in Massachusetts that will pay up to $25,000 per year in loan repayment up to a total of $75,000, for physicians who practice in a community health center. Loan repayment is not available to physicians on visas. Physicians cannot receive NHSC and state loan repayment at the same time. Both processes are competitive so we cannot guarantee awards but we have a very good record of having loan repayment approved.
  • Good Samaritan Medical Center is supporting our recruitment efforts by paying up to $10,000 in relocation costs, up to $5000 in legal fees for physicians with visa issues, and up to $1000 for interview expenses.

The following is a brief summary of benefits at BNHC:
  • Health insurance—Blue Cross Blue Shield HMO Blue New England. We pay 75% of a family or single plan for full time employees, starting the first of the month after hire
  • Dental— Dental Blue, starts at 6 months. We pay 50% family or single for full time employees.

  • Life—We pay in full for coverage equal to your annual salary, after one year. You can purchase additional insurance for yourself and family members if you want to.
  • Earned time—34 days per year, includes vacation, sick, personal, holiday. This starts accruing after 3 months so first year accrual is less than 34 days. Having paid time off in one pot makes it a lot more flexible.
  • CME—One week paid time if you sign a one-year contract. We also pay up to $1000 per year in course fees.
  • Hospital dues—we pay in full.
  • Pension—after 1 year, we match your contribution up to 3% of salary. You can invest more if you wish. You have many investment options. The rep from the pension company will help you sort out all the options.
